I've attached a larger picture (with permission) to the original post.  This tree is very nice, and much larger than it looks.

See http://bonsai4me.com/AdvTech/ATDiospyros.htm to get a feel for the size of this one.  I think most will be surprised.

 Nice tree, Leo.  May I ask, why ist there still moss around the base of the tree?

Hi Dorothy,

If you look closely at the root part above the ground, it has lost more than 3/4 of its diameter and I raised the soil to cover the underside of that root so that the viewer might imagine that this root is solid and not a thin slice. Otherwise, if it is exposed, a reverse taper is obvious. The moss prevents the soil from erosion.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Leo
